President Obama is creating a rural economy built to last—one focused on reclaiming the security of the rural middle class by growing products that the rest of the world buys, and restoring the basic values of hard work and fair play that made our country great. Under President Obama, American farmers are seeing:
- Record-high farm income;
- Record-high agricultural exports;
- Millions of acres enrolled in conservation programs.
- Agriculture is now one of the fastest-growing parts of our economy, creating one out of every 12 American jobs.
